Feedback: As always, be as detailed and critical as you like, but please keep it constructive.

Last night you cried out in the dark. I heard you in your tent, tossing and turning as the wind rustled the fabric. I left my tent and came to yours, thinking to comfort you, but only stood outside, afraid.

I looked up at the sky and the intermittent stars between the clouds, and wondered what names you had given your demons. Mine are old friends, now: fear, loneliness, rage, loss… perhaps we share them. Oh my love, what we have been through!

Last night you cried, alone, in the dark. But what I would have given to comfort you.
